Steelers Extend Coach Mike Tomlin’s Contract for Three More Years

The Pittsburgh Steelers have always prioritized stability in leadership, and this was evident as they announced a three-year contract extension for Coach Mike Tomlin.

The extension ensures that Tomlin will remain with the team through at least the 2027 season, marking his 18th season with the Steelers. He is now the longest-tenured coach in the NFL with the same team.

Steelers President Art Rooney II expressed confidence in Tomlin’s ability to lead the team to success, citing his instrumental role in the team’s achievements over the past 17 years. Tomlin, who joined the team in 2007, is only the third head coach for the Steelers since 1969, following in the footsteps of Hall of Famers Chuck Noll and Bill Cowher.

Tomlin’s tenure with the Steelers has been marked by consistent success, including seven AFC North titles, 11 playoff berths, and two Super Bowl appearances. He holds an impressive 173-100-2 record in regular season games and has never had a losing season during his time as head coach.

Looking ahead to the future, Tomlin expressed his gratitude for the contract extension and his commitment to bringing playoff success and championships to the Steelers. He is eager to kick off the 2024 season and provide fans with a memorable year.

Throughout his career, Tomlin has been a respected figure in the NFL, with nearly 80 of his players earning selections to the Pro Bowl. His leadership and dedication to the Steelers have solidified his legacy as one of the league’s most successful coaches.
